UPDATE: In response to this week’s weather and high waterway levels, the City will be performing additional mosquito spraying, as we do with any significant water event, starting next week. A spray schedule has not been set yet due to the weather.
Currently, the Brazos River water level has slightly receded to 54.28 feet. Meteorologists still predict “a slow moving storm system [is bringing] rounds of showers and thunderstorms to the region today through Saturday.” And, the National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Watch until 7 p.m. today (Friday, June 3).
Missouri City Office of Emergency Management officials continue to monitor forecasts, waterway levels and road conditions; some areas have seen receding water levels.
Due to high-water levels that have saturated the area this week, officials have closed the following roads to through traffic:
- FM 1092 at Covey Trail
- Hampton Drive from Pine Court to West Creek Club Drive; residents on Oyster Cove Drive will be allowed to exit west-bound on Hampton Drive.

Given the number of local road closures, citizens are encouraged to be cautious about high water on neighborhood streets and potential damage to their personal property. When encountering water, residents are reminded to: Turn Around Don’t Drown. Also, citizens should avoid parking in the street to allow emergency management and public safety vehicles clear passage.
